Cafe Azafran, Restaurant, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Breakfast, Saturday, Sunday, Lunch & Dinner Daily, Tapas, Small Plates, Large Plates, Restaurant, Review, Live Entertainment Thursdays, Tapas Happy Hour, Delaware Beaches


The Spaniards have been doing this type of eating for hundreds of years…The Spanish tapas are a great way to try many dishes without having to really have a full meal.  It is also a great way to share when friends get together and want to chat and catch up.


So, we decided we would go and graze at Cafe Azafran located at 18 Baltimore Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  It is on the ocean block.  Tel. 302-227-8100.  Website?

Baltimore Avenue in Rehoboth Beach is a very trendy street in Downtown Rehoboth with plenty of restaurants and boutiques.  During the height of the season our visitors enjoy walking out and about Rehoboth stopping at favorite restaurants.  Cafe Azafran has been in Rehoboth more than a few years with a sister restaurant in Lewes.


Cafe Azafran offers Breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays at this time of the year.  Every day lunch is served from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.  Dinner begins at 5 p.m.  Tapas Happy Hour Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m. During warmer months and weather permitting there is also al fresco dining.

Every Thursday night John Flynn and Holly Lane perform live from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.

Our grazing began with the following tapas:

Lamb Albondigas or lamb meatballs in a roasted red pepper sauce.


Asparagus a la Plancha, grilled and topped with crispy Jamon Serrano from Spain.


An order of Ratatouille Provencal with fresh herbs and Pecorino.


A Roasted Beet Salad to go with all of the above had mixed greens, endive, asparagus, boucheron, candied pecans, and a balsamic vinaigrette.


And because one salad was not enough…haha…we ordered the Salad Nicoise du Jour topped with salmon, haricots verts, egg, field greens, endive, new potatoes and olives.


My small plate was filled with delicious food….there was no room for dessert.


Have a good one!!

Destination? Delaware Beaches, Lewes, Black Friday, Cafe Azafran, Lunch, Restaurant, Review, Mediterranean Cuisine

So far so good…the weather has been amazing.  Lewes, Delaware looked beautiful on Thanksgiving Day as I drove around this quaint town.  It was quiet; the end of the day.  A drive through Pilottown Rd. took me towards the Lewes Boat Ramp.


Then, back to town, the views were, really, so gorgeous.  Crisp colors; the marshes giving this part of town a serenity, which was perfect on Thanksgiving Day.

Black Friday….some of us say, we have not seen this many people at the Delaware Beaches in years.  Don’t know if it was the forecast or, people just wanting to get out of town.

I love Agave.  Located at 137 2nd St. in Downtown Lewes, it is a Mexican restaurant and tequila bar. Tel. 302-645-1232.  That it is popular, is an understatement.  No reservations; I am always complaining.  The wait too long.  Well, guess what?  Today, I was doing what everyone else in Lewes had found out.  Agave certificates were going to be sold today.  Bring your “dinero” and double the dollar amount.  So, I brought $200 and I got $400 worth.   Yes!!  That was my Black Friday deal.  If I had known earlier, I would have told you.  I only found out today, but I believe this is not the first year.  Stay tuned for next year.



The certificates could be bought in increments of $10.  I got mine all in 10’s.  They cannot carry a balance.  Dine in only.  Not for carryout.  Can use as many as necessary in one visit.  Cannot be used for merchandise, or for happy hour specials.  Could not be used on Black Friday.  And, last, but not least, cannot be used for gratuity.


I waited for about 1 1/2 hours….worth the wait.  Now I will have to see when will I be able to get into Agave.  Don’t worry, a post will, definitely, follow.

My sister in law was patiently waiting for me, shopping around Lewes.  We decided to have lunch at Cafe Azafran.  My Agave certificates were safely in my bag.  Cafe Azafran has been in Lewes for many years.  It is a Mediterranean Cafe located at 109 Market St.  Tel. 302-644-4446.  Another location has been in Downtown Rehoboth Beach for a few years.  Website?


It is casual. Seating available inside or at the side porch.  Today it was the perfect day.  The heaters were hardly needed.


An order of their vegetable soup, accompanied with bread.  Great consistency, not salty; light.


An order of the Mediterranean Platter – Serrano ham, roasted peppers, romesco, olive tapenade, artichoke hearts, Manchego & goat cheese with warm baguette.  Gorgeous colors were so welcomed. Delicious.


The Special Panini was ordered – Ham, asparagus, melted brie, onions, accompanied with pasta salad.  The brie and ham, always a very nice combination.


That’s all for… Black Friday!!  Have a good one!

Brunch?, Breakfast?, Sundays, Rehoboth Beach Restaurants, Delaware Beaches


Rehoboth Beach

Rehoboth Beach

Enjoying your long week-end?  You have to admit that even though it was a bit chilly; it still has been one beautiful day.  Looking to have breakfast or brunch in Rehoboth on Sunday?  Then, check my list because there are plenty of our local restaurants that serve one or another, or both.


Breakfast vs Brunch?  I really don’t have a preference.  I am not too much of a breakfast person; a bold cup of coffee is what I crave in the a.m.  Breakfast gives you fuel to endure the day, though.  Brunch is a complete different animal.  It is a meal between or instead of breakfast or lunch.


A typical brunch is between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.; late morning.  I think brunch is all about how leisure you can be.  Socializing and indulgence come to mind.


This is the Second Season in Rehoboth Beach.  Some restaurants have taken a well deserved rest; but the following are open and ready to make you feel at home.

Jam Bistro by Eden is located at 21 Baltimore Ave.  They will be serving Brunch starting at 11:30 a.m.  Tel. 302-226-5266.

Rehoboth Beach, Restaurants, Downtown, Specials, Off Season Specials, Delaware Beaches, What’s Going On?



Rehoboth Beach is one of those coastal towns located in Delaware that is known for its good restaurants.  Even though I have lived here for many years, there are still some that I have not visited. 

A year ago I started my blog and during this past year I have reviewed some of the downtown restaurants.  Once I have reviewed a restaurant or business I send them an e-mail.  My reviews are, of course, my personal opinion.  I think the restaurants appreciate comments; how the customer has been treated from the moment he or she steps into their establishment. 

With that said, I am now getting e-mails with the fall offerings and specials.  The following list, is by no means complete.  I am getting there and I will keep passing on the information as I get it or find it.

Cafe Azafran, Restaurant, Review, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Mediterranean Cuisine, Delaware Beaches



One of my friends was complaining about me wanting to go to Rehoboth for dinner on Friday night.  Are you crazy, we are never going to find parking and on and on he went. 

Oh, he said, I cannot believe you went into Rehoboth this way, you know under the bridge, etc. etc.  Well, I never go this way, he continued, hmm, it seems easier, he kept on talking.  Oh my gosh, look at the traffic on Rehoboth Ave.  I knew it.  Good luck finding parking.  I just told him to stop complaining.  I was even driving him.  The other 2 in the car were quiet.

Our target restaurant was the new Cafe Azafran that had just opened on 18 Baltimore Ave.  The original restaurant is in Lewes on109 Market St. and this new location was going to be following the same cuisine.  The tel. is 302-227-8100.   Website is


The person that was complaining got a little happier when he saw the parking lot across from Cafe Azafran.  Not bad, afterall.  He treated for the parking and dinner. But, that’s the kind of friend he is.

Cafe Azafran is known for its authentic Mediterranean Cuisine.  They also have Tapas for sharing, entrees, desserts and a full bar.

The restaurant is not just opened for dinner; it is also opened daily from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. offering breakfast, along with a very extensive Cafe Drink Menu.

Scones, croissants, yogurt loaf, baked oatmeal with milk or yogurt, Azafran Breakfast Sandwich, Frittata with Roll and bagels with toppings are among their morning offerings.

I was so surprise to the Dawn there.  She was going to be taking care of us.  She is the best.

We were hungry so immediately we started with:

Bistro Salad – This salad has French goat cheese, crisp jamon, baby romaine, croutons, tomato, with a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette.  I really enjoyed it.


The special salad had beautiful tomatoes and also French goat cheese. Also very well received.


And, the Fresh Mozzarella and Roasted Peppers and Olives Salad was also very well liked.


For entrees we had:

Seafood Tarragona which was a bouillabaisse of shrimp, scallops, mussels, calamares, fish, hazelnut and almond Romesco in a saffron shellfish broth.  I love soups and this was perfectly seasoned and just the right amount.


Rave reviews from the person that got the Flat Iron Steak.  He said it was the best he had had.  It had roasted mushrooms, fresh garlic-chive mashed potatoes, bleu cheese butter, and a fresh vegetable demiglace.


The friend that got the Azafran Jumbo Lump Crab Cake also thought her dish was delicious.  Cafe Azafran is known for its crab cakes so I was not surprised. It had Catalan spinach, white beans, polenta and an avocado aioli.


The halibut entree was another success.  It was accompanied by ratatouille.


We actually did not try any of the desserts but I know that they do have Tiramisu, Lemon Ricotta Napoleon and Crema Catalana which is a Spanish creme brulee, among others.

Anyway, as usual I have to mention that having dinner with friends, good friends, by the way, is the best.  Really, it’s true, and you know it.

And that parking space?  Right on the ocean block of trendy Baltimore Street, $15 until 2 a.m.

I will talk to you later…..
